Relaxing getaway

This property is beautiful! However the beach is not a nice area. We had the three bedroom villa and it was perfect the only thing I would change is I would put a television in the third bedroom? Also they should designate an area for smokers as one of the people in our party was a smoker and had to sit in their car to smoke. Overall an excellent place to stay!

Smokers are not welcome

Only upon arrival did I learn that this hotel does not offer any accommodations whatsoever for its smoking guests. You are notified by papers that you sign during check in that there will be a 500.00 fine for any smoking in their rooms, ridiculous at best, but that is just the beginning. The placards in the room go on to state that not only are you not allowed to smoke in the rooms but the balconies are off limits as well. There was a placard that said to visit the front desk to inquire where the designated smoking areas were, so my wife who was already a little upset by the idea that she would have to be Inconvienianced by going away from our unit, instead of staying on one of the three balconies that the unit had, went to the front desk and was told " There is NO smoking allowed ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY". This includes the beaches, grassy areas and parking lots. Literally, you must leave the resort to go a have a smoke. When we arrived, our room was not ready, we had bought a fishing pole and some bait and had gone to their pier to do some fishing. It was a fortunate thing that we had not checked in at this point, because my wife had been smoking while we were fishing there but as a courtesy because we were not aware of their policy at that point, they let it slide. So we enjoyed our pre-stay at The hotel, but after check-in, when they already had us by our shorts, paid in advance and having driven over 300 miles to get there, I watched my wife grab her purse almost in tears and walk off hotels grounds, stand on highway 1 where cars are flying by at 50 MPH, no benches, or any other amenities whatsoever offered out there as in ashtrays or windbreaks or weather protections of any kind. We have travelled all over the world, and never have we encountered an experience where my wife was made to feel like a total pariah, unwanted on property, for enjoying a legal product. I would like to point out the obvious. By implying that you visit the front desk for the designated smoking areas, there should actually be some on property, so that in itself is dishonest on the hotels part, why not be upfront about their, loud and proud about their Anti-Smoker Rules? Booking websites should demand that this resort prominently display their smoking policy in their advertisements as to avoid unwary travelers the discomfort of having to endure a stay in this otherwise appealing Hansel and Gretel Candy House that from the outside draws you because of it's inviting beauty and charm, and trust me, the unit itself did not disappoint and was everything that was advertised, but if you happen to be a smoker, or traveling with one, forget about it. We passed many other venues along the way which I am sure would have considered a smoking guest to be just as valuable as a non smoking guest and made some sort of reasonable accommodations, and not just kicked them to the curb, so to speak.

A respite from winter

This is a very average resort when you factor costs associated during your stay. The pool area was great, however, there is no beach to swim. Yea, I know technically there is a beach, but it's covered with sea grass. The tiki bar had over priced drinks with little added spirits and the Butterfly Cafe was an overpriced chain resturant. I realize it's tourist season and costs are inflated in Florida, but come on!

Wonderful Family vacation!

Everything we did at the hotel or through their affiliated companies was first rate, top notch! The family pool was perfect for the little ones, the snorkel trip and jet ski rentals were great, and the beds were heaven! Highly, highly recommended!

Gem in the Florida Keys

We had a fantastic time at this very nice beach resort. We would definitively like to come back! One thing to note: the resort should be more upfront about the fact that the reception is closed 11 p.m.-6 a.m., and with the phone number to the overnight manager. We had to scramble to find this number in the middle of the night as a false fire alarm kept going off.

Half a mile down the main road you will find a great seafood restaurant on the water, simple but excellent. The kids truly enjoyed feeding the fish!

Family Resort

We took this as a last minute deal. The property is beautiful and the houses are very nice with all the amenities. We had a great dinner with great service at the Butterfly cafe. The problem is, this resort is very much geared to families, so if you want a little peace and quiet, look elsewhere. Also, the bartenders at the Tiki Bar are more than a little bit surly, although the ladies who assist and serve the food are wonderful. All in all, we wouldn't return to Tranquility Bay.

Great getaway!

The view was exactly like the picture - tropical paradise. The 3 BR beach house was great space. Could sleep 8 easily. . Plenty of room. Great kitchen. Washer and dryer. Restaurants on the property were good. Pools were perfect. Expected more of a swimming beach but the pools made up for it. Didn't see the exercise facility. Thought the $25/day resort fee was already paid but it wasn't and had to pay at checkout : (

4pm check in?

Kind of late IMO for this kind of money. No breakfast in restaurant. Added $25 "resort fee". That was pretty cheesy. Not sure if I would go back.
